A TOP North Ayrshire takeaway is now set to open in Saltcoats

The Viking Café, who previously won Takeaway of the Year South West Scotland, will now open a new branch in the former bookie in Countess Street.

The Viking cafe has become a firm favourite in Kilwinning after opening in Almswall Road seven years ago – with the Saltcoats branch soon set to serve top Turkish, Indian, Italian and US style cuisine.

Owner Wael Manasara said: “We will be opening the new takeaway in Saltcoats. We’re now refurbishing it and hoping to have it open in six week’s time.

“We’ve had the place in Kilwinning and for three years now have been one of the best in South West of Scotland, winning numerous awards.”
